So happy to finally show off this piece - my homage to the classic arcade game Bubble Bobble - I spent hours upon hours bouncing these little dinosaurs around the screen in all their pixelated glory, frantically popping bubbles & madly collecting jewels and fruit!
I decided a few years ago to paint what it really felt like to us playing this game back then as kids, a bit of an indulgent painting for 'me'
So I set about a heap of research and planning then off I went!
I had a huge amount of fun painting this piece & really enjoyed adding all the little details that I remember from the game.
I've been holding off showing it off as I've been waiting for the stars to align, uh I mean my new website to be finished, good shots finally taken of it, and the prints to be released!!
Available in three sizes - 8x10 inch Art Print, 16x 20 inch Art Print and 36x44 inch Limited Edition of 100, hand signed and numbered by the artist on Hahnemuhle 310gsm mat Art paper - all available now in the SHOP
After all the detail I thought I may as well go the whole hog - a rare hand carved frame for the original - I individually carved all the little pixels then painstakingly painted it all.
Below are some progress shots I took over the months of work on it, it's hard to show the what goes into all the different layers when creating an oil painting like this, but all of it was a blast!! Definitely one of the most fun paintings I have ever done!
